Gainsborough Specialist Bathing, Europe’s leading choice in hi-lo assisted baths, has launched a new range of assistive showers to complement its popular baths and recently introduced patient hoists.
As part of the Care in Bathing group Gainsborough has manufactured in the UK for over 25 years and the launch of this new showering range offers care providers with a number of significant advantages.
These modular shower units, with integrated folding seats, encompass the same high levels of quality, safety and comfort associated with Gainsborough baths.
Ideal for high-traffic environments in long term care or acute care settings, these new assisted showering solutions are exceptionally durable and remarkably versatile. The ability to shower safely and in complete comfort has been carefully considered throughout the product development process. This has resulted in showering solutions that incorporate Gainsborough’s innovative MicroGuard antimicrobial protection. This greatly reduces the risk of cross-infection and TMV2/3 thermostatically controlled shower units prevent any risk of scalding.
Gordon Farmiloe, Care in Bathing Managing Director commented: “2013 has already proven to be highly successful for Gainsborough Specialist Bathing and this latest launch will further strengthen our product portfolio. We take pride in now being able to offer customers a more comprehensive package of solutions. We are regarded as true pioneers in the assisted bathing market and have employed all our expertise in developing this new showering range. These exciting new solutions are the result of intensive R&D that will ensure the range meets all the demands of the modern care environment.”
Available in three modular sizes to accommodate various room layouts, the new assistive showers from Gainsborough maximise accessibility and versatility through intelligent design. They are available with a wide choice of wallboard and flooring options for new build or retrofit installations. Each shower module comes with a low-level access, slip resistant shower tray and is available with half-height shower doors or flat glass screens. Showering comfort is further enhanced with the addition of a soft-touch, padded seat or mobile shower chair to assist with client transfers in and out of the bathroom.
